  1. A zone change from High-Density Residential (20.1-24 units/acre) to Medium-Density Residential (8.1-14 units/acre).  See attached map to the Zone Change Ordinance. 
  2. A conditional use permit to allow construction of single family detached houses in the Medium Density Residential zone.
  3. A planned development with house plan approval.
  4. A tentative subdivision map to subdivide the property into 24 lots for the construction of 22 single-family detached homes on small lots and two parcels commonly owned by a homeowners association.  See attachments to the Tentative Map Resolution.

The homes would be on individual footprint style lots with each homeowner owning just the land under the footprint of the house and the side yards.  All the homes would face the exterior public streets (Cogburn Circle and Opal Way) and have driveway access via one common internal private access way.
    2. Ashton Place Unit 2 (west of Opal Way) consists of 15 lots for single family detached homes and one common parcel. The homes also would be on individual footprint style lots with each homeowner owning just the land under the footprint of the house and the side yards.  All the homes would face the exterior public streets (Cogburn Circle and Potters Lane).  They would have driveway access via a private alley in the rear of each home.
